[EP-tech] Front End/JacaScript

Hi James,
Certainly don?t change things under /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/  - that?s just making a rod for future you?s back!

Have you seen the training bits on the wiki?  e.g. https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Training_Video:Technical_Orientation
It kind of depends on what you want to change, but essentially you can override existing functions within local archive directory, or even create your own functionality to extend the basic options and that would make your life a lot simpler for future upgrades!

Subject: [EP-tech] Front End/JacaScript


It's me again (sorry). I'm trying to get to grips with the EPrints front end this week.

I've managed to find (hopefully) all of the autoloading JavaScript and CSS files and managed to make a couple of my own in my repository directories.

I was looking today at how these boxes work (any collapse/expand box in EPrints):


When I inspect the "+" symbol in chrome it takes me to an element with this:

<a class="ep_box_collapse_link" onclick="EPJS_blur(event); EPJS_toggleSlideScroll('ep_summary_box_5254_content',false,'ep_summary_box_5254');EPJS_toggle('ep_summary_box_5254_colbar',true);EPJS_toggle('ep_summary_box_5254_bar',false);return false" href="#"><img alt="+" src="/style/images/plus.png" border="0"> CORE (COnnecting REpositories)</a>

A quick google points me to this file in Eprints:


Can anybody advise me, or point me to some guidance, on how I would alter the behaviour of this piece of JavaScript? I'm not certain, but I'm about 99% sure that I don't edit Box.pm at this location.

This isn't particularly urgent, I'm just trying to learn how it works.
